[Quoted] Does anyone have any tips for checking with a specified character within a string
is numeric or not?

I guess I could do lots of nested 'ifs', (i.e. if v_character = '1' then... elsif v_character = '2' then... elsif... ) but I wondered if there was a more efficient and elegant solution.

Any ideas?
